Ok, so I ended up putting the canister on the tank, it's really doing a good job of getting some of the junk out of there that came off the rock once it was put in the tank. I tested to see if the rock was still indeed live, I put some pure ammonia (the same that i used to cycle some of my fw
tanks), i dosed it up to 3ppm last night, this morning about 6 hours later, ammonia and nitrite was 0, nitrate was about 5ppm. I went to the lfs
to look at their sw
stuff since i'd never really looked other than in awe. I ended up getting a small turbo snail (cant remember the name, the guy said it wasnt one that got real big) and two margarita snails. I'm really starting to like this sw
stuff, so much that more than likely when we move this summer, im going to set up a much bigger tank. Anyways, another question, i've got my sg
at 1.024 right now, is that about right? I've heard so many numbers thrown out, im not real sure what to keep it at. Oh, and i'm definitely getting better lighting soon. I saw the corals and, well, as everybody told me, I want some!
